Theo Boronovskis

1943 –

Judo made its Olympic debut at Tokyo 1964 where three specific weight categories were contested, plus an open category. In the open category, Theodore (Ted) Boronovskis won a bronze medal and the giant Dutchman Anton Geesink won the gold. Geesink's win was a shock to the Japanese as they had expected to win all the four gold medals contested, but in the event they "only" won three and a silver. Boronovskis's bronze medal was Australia's only medal in Olympic judo until Maria Pekli matched the feat at Sydney 2000.
